Penza, 23 May 2015. PenzaNews. The Penza city administration head Yuri Krivov took part in an official “Farewell Bell” ceremony held in the school No. 43 early on Saturday, May 23.

Dmitry Vladimirovich [Sviridov] was an incredibly bright man, a true teacher. I believe those who were lucky to get acquainted with him will treasure these memories forever,” said the mayor.
After that, Yuri Krivov addressed the teachers, graduates and their parents.
